Adoption and Innovation Hubs

Through this program, there will be 8 Adoption and Innovation Hubs. These hubs will provide networks for researchers, primary producers and community groups to work together to enhance drought resilient practices.

The hubs will service different regions, reflecting Australia’s different farming and climatic zones.

These regions are:

  • southern NSW
  • southern Queensland / northern NSW
  • southwest WA
  • Victoria
  • Top End NT/WA
  • tropical north Queensland
  • South Australia
  • Tasmania

A competitive grants process has opened to select the hubs.

Hubs will be consortia of research providers and research users, with a regional focus. They will come together to address local drought resilience research, development, extension, adoption and innovation priorities.

Register your interest

Does your organisation want to take part in a hub? Express your interest now.

Use our interactive map to pin your location and share your details. Other organisations can then use this to help form consortia, or inform their decisions about participating in a hub.

You can use the map to express your interest in:

  • running a hub with other organisations (who may contact you about forming a consortia)

Map your location

about 1 month

Welcome. Thank you for sharing your interest in being part of the Future Drought Fund’s Adoption and Innovation Hubs.

You can use this map to pin your location and share your organisation's details. Other organisations can then use this to inform their decisions, create a consortium, or get in contact with you.

We are not involved in this process. This map is to help interested parties share information, collaborate and to form consortia.

Using the map

Be aware—details you share will be publicly available when you submit your response.

When using this map, you must abide by our terms of use.

To use the map:

  • register or sign in first
  • find your location
  • choose the pin that reflects your interest (only choose one pin)
  • drag and drop it on your location on the map
  • answer a few short questions about your organisation, including the hub regions you’re interested in.

The left-hand menu on the map allows you to choose what kind of pin you want drop. You can also see the activity feed to read other people's comments or filter the view to show only selected types of pins.

If you are interested in taking part in multiple roles to establish a hub, please drop the most relevant pin on the map. You can leave additional comments in the activity feed.

You can add a pin to this map until 17 December 2020.
